VMware vSphere 6.5: Failed to power on virtual machine. The attempted operation cannot be performed in the current state (Powered off)

After editing a virtual machine to detach an ISO or disconnect the CD-ROM the VM powers off and the following error message is shown when attempting to power on:

Failed to power on virtual machine. The attempted operation cannot be performed in the current state (Powered off).

To resolve:

1. Unregister the virtual machine from the virtual machine inventory list.

2. Re-register the virtual machine by browsing to the datastore and locating the VM configuration file (.vmx) file.
